Marie Louise Barrett, J.D. (1937-2020)

Beloved wife of attorney John R. Barrett, magnificent mother to William and Brian, devoted grandparent to Jack, Peter, Gavin and Cianna, shared best friend with sister Helga.

Her professional career included service as a professor of municipal corporations and as general counsel to St. Thomas Law School.  Thereafter, challenging tradition, she became one of the two highest ranking women in Miami Beach’s City Hall serving as deputy City Attorney and Interim City Attorney.  All who knew her respected and admired her.

As her husband I was gifted with “the glory of her life and the honor of her company.”
